Community Leaders Offer Their Perspective on Jon

"I have worked with Jon on community issues of interest for many years and respect his hard work and strong commitment to our community. I strongly support him for election to the Kirkland City Council."
-Ted Marx, Former Parks Board Member
 
"Jon's attention to our community, its challenges and opportunities are what we like the most about him. He gets out and meets the people of our wonderful city and genuinely listens to their thoughts and concerns. Thank you Jon for your service and leadership!"
-Marc and Marce Nance
 
"Jon truly cares about the Kirkland community and it's great to have a representative that deeply understands the needs of Juanita and Finn Hill."
-Brock Phillips

"Jon understands the unique neighborhoods we have and the sense of community each of them bring to the City of Kirkland. He has already shown his dedication to our city by serving on the Transportation Commission for 8 years. Additionally, he has taken it upon himself to visit our fire stations, community groups and other local organizations to hear what is important to the people of Kirkland."
-Cassandra Sage, LWSD School Board Director

"During his years on the board of the Finn Hill Neighborhood Alliance, Jon was a committed and effective advocate for preserving open space and making our neighborhood more walkable with more paths and safer sidewalks. Jon is terrific at listening to neighbors, focusing on the key issues, and developing creative solutions. He knows how to build a consensus and work with public officials to get prompt and cost-effective results."
-Scott Morris, Finn Hill Neighborhood Alliance President

"Having worked with Jon on a number of city projects and initiatives over the years, and now working side-by-side with him on the city council, I know he is sincerely committed to protecting the interests of everyone who lives, works, or plays in Kirkland. His character, knowledge, and experience enable him to be an effective council member now and in the future. I urge you to vote to return him to the council for a full term!"
-Toby Nixon, Kirkland City Council

"Whether it's his time on the Kirkland Planning Commission, or working with the Finn Hill Neighborhood Alliance, Jon has demonstrated his deep commitment to his community. One of the biggest issues facing Kirkland, and the neighborhoods on the north end of I-405, is how we deal with growth. Jon's background and level of expertise in land-use and transportation makes him the right person at the right time. He will be a strategic asset for Kirkland and an excellent partner for me to work with in the legislature."
 
-Guy Palumbo, Former State Senator, 1st Legislative District
